...is definitely my number three favourite.
I've made a lot of hats over the years. Simple ones, cute ones, adorable ones, every style and colour. I've made a lot that I liked for different reasons...the construction, the colour, the compliments, the big eyes peaking out from under the brim. After making my first Epic Hat (it's new name!) in the fall, I was asked to make two more. One in sage greens, and one in dusty pinks.
I was surprised when I went through my stash and didn't find a whole lot of textured green or pink yarns (in the right tones). I ordered some special yarns from
Bessie's Treasures and started on the green hat first....just after Christmas while recovering from the flu. The first step is fun--pulling out all the possible yarns.
remember what happened when I tried using a dark brown Tintex dye and ended up with green.....I was worried that this time I'd end up with brown by using green, LOL. No worry though, it turned out to be the perfect sage green.
As much as I love this hat, and the brown one, the one I truly adore above all others is the pink one. Which you'll see in the next post. I already included this hat in my totals last year, it was only 91gr though it was apparently shorter than the beige one.
